Answer: Dear please do not take any medicine without prescribing with doctor.of ur gynae says so please take it. If you're itching because of dry, stretched skin, these simple measures can give you relief: 1.) Apply cold. Put an ice pack or a cool, wet compress on itchy areas for five to 10 minutes, or until the itch fades. 2.) Moisturize with fresh aloe vera gel 3.) Apple Neem oil very effective for rashes 4.) Take a bath with water boiled with neem leaves 5.) Take an occasional warm oatmeal bath. Hope this works.

Answer: Hie Itching during pregnancy is due to increase in  blood volume During pregnancy the blood volume increase upto 50% to meet the increasing need of your baby and body Increase in blood volume makes your skin extra sensitive and itchy Go for mild unscented product for your skin rather than product that contain strong agents or fragrance As they may irritate your skin Moisturise your skin well with oil , unscented moisturiser or body butter Oatmeal bath can help you with itching Add a small cup of oatmeal to a jug of hot water And let it sit for 20-30 min Add the jug to your bathing water and bath with it It will naturally calm and moisturise your skin Having normal to mild cold water bath can help you suppress the itching as well However if the itching is severe then you have to consult your gynaecologist as it may be a cause of concern
